Chicken Salad Sandwich

I meant to make a different chicken salad recipe, but chrome blocked the website saying it had malware, so I improvised instead. Also, I totally thought we had grapes, but we didn't. So apples subbed in! I also meant to not eat this the night I made it. The sandwiches were supposed to be a quick dinner for later, but I ended up making more than enough for 2 nights and a lunch, so we enjoyed some early. This isn't the most stunning or gourmet meal, but it's quick, easy and pretty delicious. I'm posting the recipe so that I can remember what I did. Feel free to adjust amounts and ingredients to what you have. That's what I did! Next time I'd add more nuts and herbs or spices (whole mustard seed?) and possibly the raisins you see on the counter that I was debating but decided against.

We used some 30 minute rolls from here. They were okay, but I don't know if I'd make them again unless I was in a rush.

The creative process mess

Chicken Salad
loosely adapted from epicurious

2 cans cooked shredded chicken
3/4 large apple, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
celery leaves from one bunch, chopped
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup mayonaise
1/4 onion, diced
3 tablespoons chopped almonds
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped

Mix all ingredients and serve alone, on bread of choice or on lettuce leaves.


  1. Oooh, I've been looking for recipes to use the apple cider vinegar I bought a little while ago! I'll have to try this out!

  2. I love apple cider vinegar! Especially in pan sauces and roasts!
